Choosing Travel Insurance

As an UK based independent travel consultant, specializing in travel in Europe, I always recommend that my clients take out travel insurance when making a travel booking. I think that it is money well spent for peace of mind. You just never know what might happen when you are traveling and you don't want to end up seriously out of pocket if your luggage is lost or you have an accident. I know that EU residents are eligible for health care in member states but this does not cover you for every situation eg an air ambulance home, Evidently 15% of UK residents don't bother taking out travel insurance.

With most package holidays you can not book a holiday if you do not have travel insurance. so this will serve as a reminder. The insurance offered by travel agents is nearly always much more expensive than cover that you buy independently, so shop around for your own cover. However if you are booking an independent holiday you should remember to ensure that you have travel insurance.

Don't just look at the price of the insurance premium, also examine the levels of cover for various incidents, what is the excess deducted from claims. Will the sports or activities you do on holiday be covered or be considered hazardous and excluded from the cover? If you take at least 2 one week holidays in Europe per year, it is usually worth taking out annual insurance cover.

It it also a good idea to leave a photocopy of your policy with a relative or friend in the UK. Remember to carry the 24 hour emergency contact phone number for the insurance company with you at all times. Hopefully you will never need to call that number.

You can get quotes for travel insurance in my site, http://www.europealacarte.co.uk/insurance.html

Karen Bryan is a UK based independent travel consultant and writer. Her website Europe a la Carte, http://www.europealacarte.co.uk, features less well known destinations in Europe. Karen believes that if you venture even slightly off the beaten tourist track that you will see more of the real Europe.
